Question about Fuji FinePix S5200 / S5600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Ive been using the xd card on my fuji finepix s5200 for many times and today when I was about to upload the pictures in my laptop the card says it has to be initialized. How do I initialize a card and if I do so, can I do it without deleting the pictures I took because I have no back up for those pictures I took

I hate answering a question with a question but can't see a way around this. Are you using the camera to download pictures to the computer? If so what you need to do is purchase a card reader and I would suggest a card reader that does many different memory card types.

What this card reader does is steps completely around your camera and downloads pictures directly to your computer.

The Card Reader plugs into a USB port on your computer and looks at the reader (once the memory card is inserted) like an external mass storage device or external hard drive.

You then download the pictures from the reader/memory card to a file you create on your computer.

The nice thing about this is that it won't matter what camera you have or memory card you use the camera is no longer in the flow of pictures downloaded to the computer.

After the pictures are on the computer you can put the memory card back in the camera and "Format" the card this function is normally found in the set up menu.

HOW CAN I UPLOAD PICS FROM CARD READER TO LAPTOP ONLY THE PICS THAT I WANT.


Regardless of the brand of your camera, place the card (xD in most Fuji models) in the reader. ensure that card is readable ("My Computer" initial screen).
The uploading package will likely display all pictures.
If the all pictures you want are contiguous, click on the first picture that you want to upload, hold the Shift key and click on the last pictures you want to upload. release Shift.

Formatted the card on windows via my computer. Format to FAT and did not select quick format option. Took about 5-10 seconds. Card is working fine now.

Downloading problems


Fuji S5200/5600 are indeed pretty slow to download pictures when directly linked to a computer throught the USB port.
The only solution to speed up downloading is to remove from the camera the XD card and put it in a card reader provided with USB 2 interface.
Picasa, too, is not the fastest program to copy pictures on your PC. In my experience, XN View
(free) is faster than Picasa in copyng pics.
